From the Mail - who knows how accurate this is but 6'4 at 16 is a bit scary. Let's hope he becomes as projected

Quote
Aston Villa have beaten a number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, to secure Nigerian defender Iffy Udanoh, according to reports from his homeland. The 16-year-old is highly rated in Nigeria and is expected to be called up to the U17 side in the coming days. He also holds an American passport and is eligible to play for England.
 
Along with Liverpool - West Ham and Wolves both gave a trial to the 6ft4 defender who has been likened to Virgil van Dijk.  In total, it is claimed eight Premier League clubs were keen on Udanoh, before he signed with Villa. He was previously playing for non-league, London based side Erith & Belvedere before making the switch to Villa's youth set up. Udanoh will be part of the U18 side on B6 as he looks to impress on his initial deal.

He sounds a bit...dodgy.

You have to wonder if there is some kind of agenda against Aston Villa football club.I am listening to the U21 match against Salford live on Talksport and the commentators can not believe the penalty just awarded against us .They said it was very,very harsh and they thought it was more like a dive and Villa can feel hard done by

The reaction from the players clearly thought it should not have been given

Just got back having taken advantage of the free ticket if you have a menís season ticket. Could have easily been 5 despite an excellent save in injury time denying Rovers a point. Decent turn out too, the lower trinity looked full. Good standard and very enjoyable.

Sounds like the new owners have seen the potential for a quick win in getting the Women into the top flight and backed them pretty heavily in the summer. Good to see it's paying off early in the season. The sooner they can overtake the Blues women and put the world back to rights the better.

We have a player in the u18s with the surname Philogene-Bidace. We must have the best crop of youth surnames in the country.

Under 23ís lost 2-0 at Stoke on Monday evening.

On a side note, and apologies if this has been mentioned before, but  the official site and social media channels seem to be fairly limited when it comes to reserve/youth team coverage. Appreciate there was a first team game on the same night, but havenít seen a single mention of this at all.
